A post on the Proteccion Civil Pulpi Voluntarios Facebook page said Local Police, Guardia Civil, the Red Cross and the Levante firefighting service were dispatched to the beach last Thursday, following an alert from the 112 Andalucia emergency service.
A canine unit checked there were no victims trapped beneath the rocks.
